GUERNSEY motorists were ranked second in the UK for owning the fastest cars – despite the island's 35mph maximum speed limit.

Islanders came runner-up to drivers in the City of London, who topped the survey of almost 6,000 car owners. The results, released by weloveanycar.com, were based on the average top speed of the cars owned by motorists from each region.

Jersey drivers finished just behind Guernsey in third place.

Guernsey's high ranking was of little surprise to Forest Road Garage owner Dale Crowsley, who said that islanders took pride in their motors.

'I'm not surprised in the slightest, even though we have a speed limit of 35mph. Why do people have fast cars? Because they can.'
